The major challenge of Real Time Protocol is to balance efficiency and fairness over limited bandwidth. MPTCP has proved to be effective for multimedia and real time networks. Ideally, an MPTCP sender should couple the subflows sharing the bottleneck link to provide TCP friendliness. However, existing shared bottleneck detection scheme either utilize end-to-end delay without consideration of multiple bottleneck scenario, or identify subflows on switch at the expense of operation overhead. In this paper, we propose a lightweight yet accurate approach, EMPTCP, to detect shared bottleneck. EMPTCP uses the widely deployed ECN scheme to capture the real congestion state of shared bottleneck, while at the same time can be transparently utilized by various enhanced MPTCP protocols. Through theory analysis, simulation test and real network experiment, we show that EMPTCP achieves higher than 90% accuracy in shared bottleneck detection, thus improving the network efficiency and fairness.

In modern grid systems which is a typical cyber-physical System (CPS), information space and physical space are closely related. Once the communication link is interrupted, it will make a great damage to the power system. If the service path is too concentrated, the risk will be greatly increased. In order to solve this problem, this paper constructs a route planning algorithm that combines node load pressure, link load balance and service delay risk. At present, the existing intelligent algorithms are easy to fall into the local optimal value, so we chooses the deep reinforcement learning algorithm (DRL). Firstly, we build a risk assessment model. The node risk assessment index is established by using the node load pressure, and then the link risk assessment index is established by using the average service communication delay and link balance degree. The route planning problem is then solved by a route planning algorithm based on DRL. Finally, experiments are carried out in a simulation scenario of a power grid system. The results show that our method can find a lower risk path than the original Dijkstra algorithm and the Constraint-Dijkstra algorithm.

Sun, H., Liu, L., Feng, L., Gu, Y. X..  2014.  Introducing Code Assets of a New White-Box Security Modeling Language. 2014 IEEE 38th International Computer Software and Applications Conference Workshops. :116—121.

This paper argues about a new conceptual modeling language for the White-Box (WB) security analysis. In the WB security domain, an attacker may have access to the inner structure of an application or even the entire binary code. It becomes pretty easy for attackers to inspect, reverse engineer, and tamper the application with the information they steal. The basis of this paper is the 14 patterns developed by a leading provider of software protection technologies and solutions. We provide a part of a new modeling language named i-WBS (White-Box Security) to describe problems of WB security better. The essence of White-Box security problem is code security. We made the new modeling language focus on code more than ever before. In this way, developers who are not security experts can easily understand what they need to really protect.
